WWE 2K22 features a stacked roster of over 120 Superstars and Legends, and that is before the 28 DLC wrestlers are included over the coming months.
Included in the game are all of the expected Superstars such as AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, and Seth Rollins, as well as many Legends of the industry including Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and Eddie Guererro.
With the tragic unfortunate passing of Scott Hall (aka Razor Ramon) earlier this week, many fans will be hoping that the NWO founder is in WWE 2K22 so they can relive their childhood memories with “The Bad Guy”.
Thankfully, we can report that Scott Hall is a playable wrestler in WWE 2K22. The Bad Guy was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame for a second time in 2021 as part of the NWO faction alongside Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Sean Waltman.
Because of this, WWE 2K22 heavily features the NWO, with the most expensive version of the game being the NWO 4 Life edition, which features the NWO versions of Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan, and Sean Waltman (Syxx), in addition to Eric Bischoff and some NWO themed arenas and championships, such as the Souled Out 1997 arena and the spray-painted WCW World Heavyweight Championship.
Players can also purchase a regular version of Scott Hall, and the other three Legends mentioned above, in the in-game store for 38,000 Virtual Currency, the in-game currency that is earned through completing matches and modes in the game. There are two versions of The Bad Guy in the in-game store, Scott Hall, and his classic WWE persona Razor Ramon, meaning that players have three different versions of the Legend to use in WWE 2K22.
It is strange that WWE 2K22 focuses heavily around Scott Hall and the NWO as the game was only released earlier this month, but it is good for fans that there is an official way to play as The Bad Guy in the latest WWE game as a way to remember their childhood hero.
“Hard work pays off, dreams come true. Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do.” Rest In Peace Scott Hall.
